How To Cover Up Moderately Thinning Areas Of The Hair

One major concern of some women is thinning hair or bald spots.  While there are some very effective remedies to this, most being very expensive like hair plugs, most are not noticeably effective.  Other remedies include volumizing shampoos and conditioners that are supposed to make the hair appear thicker.  Again, if your hair is noticeably thin, thin enough to see your scalp fairly well, those products won't be enough to give you the coverage you are looking for.

Today I had a client who was worried about her hair that was thinning around the edges.  She asked me if there was a product that she could buy or if there was anything she could do about it.  I have a product that was sent to me a while ago that I thought I would try on her.  It is called X-fusion and it is made up of hair fibers and comes out when you shampoo your hair.

To apply the Xfusion, you simply shake it sparingly onto the hair in the areas where you can see the scalp until the scalp is no longer visible.  It comes in many colors so that you can blend it with your color hair.  Here is a picture of the client's hair before I applied anything.

This client's thinning is not due to any severe tension on her edges, she has simply noticed thinning as she has gotten older.  As you can see, it is not terribly bad but it does bother her.  Here are some after pictures once the Xfusion was applied.

excuse the clip, was trying to get the hair out of the way

I only added a little, and after this picture I decided to add a bit more...

After looking at the final results, my client was pleased with how it looked.  She was happy that her scalp wasn't as visible anymore.  Again, what I was using was only a sample that was sent to me, but it is known by the name "cover up" or something to that effect at Sally's.  It is very easy to apply by yourself, you simply shake in on the areas needed until you are satisfied.  It comes out just as easy when you shampoo your hair or get it wet.  As far as price, I don't think it will dent your wallets too bad coming in at a price point of around $10-$15 I think.
